Therein your confusion. While the idea that Glorantha has internally consistent laws is, of course, quite defensible ; the actual laws that really *do* govern Glorantha are the external laws of MGF.

MGF does not resemble mathemetics.

But the structure that you want is an internal one ; therefore, it is itself a *content* of Glorantha, and subject to the external whim of its creators.

Whoops ! I sympathise, and take back the offending remark. I apologise.
